A new range of unique 100% SAF™ fabrics provide a fully maceratable superabsorbent solution. These fabrics are ideal for use in superabsorbent wound dressings and also spill capture products, such as those used in hospitals to contain bloods, urines and other liquids that need to be managed safely, hygienically and effectively.
100% SAF™ fabrics are available up to 2m wide and range from between 200-800gsm. To help protect the fibre during processing, the line is housed in a controlled humidity environment.
SAF™ – a soft superabsorbent fibre – is the key component in all of our fabrics. SAF™ fabrics absorb water and saline rapidly with excellent retention levels. Blood plasma can also be absorbed with greater resistance to solids blocking the surface. The SAF™ content does not shed when the fabrics are being cut and shaped for use. Learn more about SAF™
Fabric selection will be influenced by the final end use, but also many other requirements –absorbency, thickness, durability, and, often most importantly, budget. An experienced development team are on hand to offer advice and help with initial fabric selection for trials. Where possible, bespoke fabrics will be designed and manufactured to meet specific requirements. Contact us for more information
